Mary Colter may well be the best-known unknown architect in the world: her buildings at the Grand Canyon National Park-which include Lookout Tower, Hopi House, Bright Angel Lodge, and many others-are admired by almost five million visitors a year.This extraordinary book about an extraordinary woman weaves together three stories-the remarkable career of a woman in a man's profession during the late 19th century; the creation of a building and interior style drawn from regional history and landscape; and the exploitation, largely at the hands of the railroads, of the American Southwest for leisure travel.
Arnold Berke is Senior Editor, Preservation/The National Trust for Historic Preservation and lives in Washington D.C. Alexander Vertikoff is the cover photographer for American Bungalow and lives in Sedillo, New Mexico.
